 Today is Halloween. A day for the candy and costumes. Today though is the anniversary of the start of this blog. Thank you for staying with me for the long haul. I was listening to James Taylor, and all I could think is how sweet it is to be loved by you. Your dedication to come here each day amazes me daily. Something I have to remind myself of every day. 

Give me grace

To accept

The great things

You bestow 

On me 


Even asking

 Look up

Not down

Your path

Is forward


Is not an option

For your caliber

 In the early morning light as the sun comes up taking a ride I am seeing Your beauty is wherever and whenever I look. How many times do I put down my phone, and take in creation. The natural world right at my fingertips. I see bright pink and purple hues in the skies, the autumn leaves fading and falling, and I’m giddy. Happiness is the time I take to enjoy the cool winds, dripping drops and twirl into a puddle of possibility. The poetry of life is found in every sigh and every smile. Every tear and every lipstick smear. Every day, the magic is always there.

I need 

To trust You

Because my life

Depends on it

Breaking down

In tears

This morning

Over what

I can’t control

Is telling me

I need to breathe

And when I can’t 

Bring it 

To the feet

Of the Father


I need prayer

To rid

Me of 

The rage

I’m angry


And need

To hydrate

 With a hint of darkness still obscuring natural light this morning, I’m huddled in my thinking chair. I have been giving God a running wishlist for years. The miraculous is that He has obliged my whims and given more than I can imagine. When I look around me, I’m just in awe that He takes such good care of me. As a disabled person, you need an inordinate amount of help daily.  God provides every day. All He asks is that I accept His mercies with a grateful heart. This morning, my thoughts are not smooth or succinct. I’m just grateful for it all even when I can’t express it eloquently.

Nature’s lead

 In the simple still of Monday I sit here remembering that valleys don’t last forever. I’m climbing out and upward not dwelling in the places and spaces I don’t belong. In autumn, I’m coming alive to the possibility that life gets sweeter when answers aren’t found. The leaves fall to the ground and change colors in hopes of brighter tomorrows.   I’m taking nature’s lead. 


 Highlight of your weekend?

A blog commenter said “Does God take up challenges?”  The question hasn’t left my mind yet. It’s a great question. It’s one I haven’t given much thought. God is omnipotent. Nothing is a challenge for Him. I do think He offers Himself everyone who sincerely still has questions as to whether to trust. God has been waiting for me to give it all to Him without caveats. I still cling to my own strength. I do it more than I want to admit. I don’t know if I’m answering the question.  All I know is I’m only free when I stop asking. I hope that God gives you peace. The challenge is:  Will you accept the gift?

 Thank you Lord 

For doing it

Again and again

Calming my mind

Relaxing my heart

And taking care 

Of me

When I think

I can’t.

 How good 

Is my life 

Too good 

To be true 

But it is

A true miracle 

From whom

Not much

Was expected

But God said

Challenge accepted
